Hyundai i30 Pwns Prius in Low-Emissions Race

Hyundai is on a roll of cheap 25mg cialis late with its alternative energy vehicles taking home prizes. First was recent news the auto manufacturer's Tucson Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle had gotten a prefect score at a "sustainable road mobility" event in Shanghai, China. Now we find out from the Land Down Under it won Australia's most recent Panasonic World Solar Challenge race in the Greenfleet Technology Class. This challenge, though focused on solar-powered cars, also allows for other classes of participation in fuel efficient vehicles.

The Hyundai i30 was the vehicle that got the honors in the race for best fuel economy and what is levitra lowest CO2 emissions. Hyundai said the 1.6 CRDi turbodiesel journeyed over 3,000km from Darwin to Adelaide last month, consuming 3.2 litres of fuel per 100km and emitting 97g of CO2 per kilometer traveled. The i30 is fitted with a 1.6-liter diesel "using a common rail injection system. The CRDi engine is fitted with a turbocharger featuring variable vane geometry for optimal air intake at any engine speed."

The i30, which is levitra discounts targeted toward European car drivers, beat out what many would consider very environmentally friendly cars. Hyundai seemed proud to state that "by comparison, the Leaseplan Toyota Prius consumed 5.6 litres per 100km and emitted 146g of CO2 per kilometer." The Peugeot 207 HDi consumed 3.9 litres per 100km and emitted 118g of CO2 per kilometer. Meanwhile, Team Ethanol Saab BioPower (85 percent ethanol and unleaded gas) consumed 9.3 litres per 100km and emitted 148g of CO2 per kilometer.

Could you give us Americans some love and throw in a MPG rating? Please?

If I did my math right the cheap levitra no prescription Hyundai gets 69.8 MPG.

I did the same math and got a different answer. 5.6 liters = 1.48 gallons, 100 km = 62 miles, ergo 62miles/1.48 gallons = 41.9 mpg. Not bad milage, but nothing super spectacular.

@Lee, your math is the Prius. The Hyundai would be 3.2 liters, which is 0.85 gallons. So 62 miles / 0.85 gallons = 72.9 MPG. Which is almost twice the Prius'.
Coming to US...

So, per the wiki entry for the i30, look for this vehicle coming to the US market in the first part of 2008 as a 2009 model badged as an Elantra Touring.

That's some good mileage! Almost worth the levitra discussionsdiscount priced levitra new car premium to get that kind of mileage! I just hope they actually let us yanks have the turbodiesel
Dirty diesel

Newer turbo diesel engines are a lot cleaner now but still, particulates and NOx emissions are a problem. Particulates could even "offset" carbon-dioxide reductions.
Catalytic converter?
written by stands2reason, December 24, 2007
Can't they use a catalytic converter now that we've pulled sulfur from our diesel fuel? Also, I thought they had particulate filters? Oh well, I guess we'll just have to wait until we get to use Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition.

Why can’t they record the mileage in kilometer per liter KPL? 31 KPL. Is this better than the Honda insight? This comes with a little less embarrassment when driving.

Dear KPL, I agree it would be much much simpler, but if you take a minute to see what the numbers would have looked like for some big SUV etc, (IE the result would start with a decimal point) you quickly see it had to canadian pharmacy levitra be litres per 100km, unfortunately'
